West End Twilight Markets

A good place to test out a new toy I recently received from ebay, the sekonic l-308s light meter. My nostalgic medium format Mamiya C330 is always well received in west end, plus I had been meaning to check out the Twilight Markets for ages.

TUCK SHOP AESTHETIC – work in progress

When seeking to capture Australia’s identity it is tempting to turn one’s lens towards the optimistic scenes, multicultural citizens, modern, innovative design, images that tend to represent Australia as a country that is not weighed down by rigid convention, a country that moves with the times.

I am enticed by the evidence to the contrary. To me, much of Australia’s identity can be found in old colonial traditions that left the country scattered with sad, slightly dilapidated structures, rich in melancholia. From old milk bars, to barely functioning bowling clubs, some of these structures have been standing for longer than the Sydney Harbour Bridge. There is an element present in these structures that I refer to as the “tuck shop” aesthetic. I believe that, by concentrating on these structures as subjects, I can capture an honest, less vaunted side of the Australian ethos.
